I don’t understand Liverpool’s transfer policies.

I’m sorry to anyone who supports Liverpool, and may read this, but these are all my own opinions and if you would like to tell me why this happens then please do in the comments below, I would like to hear your opinions on the matter.

So, transfer policies. Liverpool this season have seen many big names in and a peculiar absence of big names coming in the other way in recent times. Maybe down to losing the CL spot to Manchester City after leapfrogging the division.

Although the big names haven’t really been coming in, the money being spent on players is unbelievable. 35 for Carroll, 16 for Henderson, 10 for Borini, 20 for Downing, 15 for Allen it soon adds up.

So what’s my main gripe with this? Well, all the players above are mid-table quality at best. Carroll does not fit into the squad at all, and they use him completely wrongly.

I thought the whole thing was a King Kenny special and when he left that it would be different under Rodgers, but it seems to be the same.

For the players out this summer; Aquilani, Aurelio, Bellamy, Kuyt & Maxi, the’re all good squad players, and I can see Liverpool struggling without a few of them.

Now let’s go on to transfers into the club this season.

Allen, this is one of the things that makes me dislike Brendan Rodgers. As a Watford fan I know all about the bloke, we were the first team he managed outside of the Chelsea Youth setup. He did the same to us with Danny Graham that he did with Joe Allen.

The difference here is that Rodgers took it one step further and promised his former chairman at Swansea that he wouldn’t take any of his players for a year. Although Swansea got the better deal from this, its still immoral.

Borini, formerly at Swansea on loan in the Championship he had a prolific spell with the club, albeit only 9 games scoring 6 goals. Other than that spell the kids not really that prolific and for 8 Million pounds you at least expect a 10 goals a season player.

Some will say that he had a good spell in the Championship with Swansea but Carroll did well in the Championship, and look where he is now?

Finally, Assaidi, I can’t say I know a lot about the guy except he signed from Heerenveen. Could be a good signing, and for 2 Million, probably could be a shout at signing of the season for Liverpool.

If Liverpool do beating Arsenal to the signing of Sahin, then it will probably overshadow the whole transfer dealings so far, but with Real not wanting to sell the player on afterwards for cheap, its seems as if the player is just going to Liverpool for the shop window.

Arsenal’s bid was rejected for two reasons, the Champions League football and the offer that was made, Real want the financial side of the deal to be right, and for a team that won’t have the chance to be competing against them next season. At the moment they want Sahin to either recover the cost of his transfer or come good to join back up with the side.

So that’s my little piece on Liverpool’s transfer dealings, any Liverpool fans feel free to comment with your views.

Until next time guys.

    Jay – Yeah, I don’t really like Rodgers all that much, but he’s still carrying on the trend of Liverpool overpaying for players who aren’t that good. For the money they paid for say Carroll and Downing combined they could have brought in a top quality striker, they tend to gamble too much and its no wonder why their struggling to get funds together to further bolster the squad.

    James – I don’t see many contradictions about what I said. Borini was overpriced at 8 Million, for a player of his quality. Assiadi is the only contradiction in the entire article and to be fair I haven’t heard about him and he was a decent price, so didn’t really have anything to say about him.

    Suarez is possibly the only truly sucessful attacking signing Liverpool have made since Benitez.

    This might be that the team hasn’t really found its feet since the Spaniard left or it might just be a series of transfer howlers but in the same period as the Anfield slide, Newcastle have surged back up to being a serious team.

    One wonders whether relegation and rebuilding would do Liverpool good in the long run.

    Jem- I completely agree with you there, would certainly hit home that they need to change, did the world of good for the likes of Newcastle and West Ham.

    Granted I don’t think Newcastle would have been where they are today without the £35 Million generated from the sale of Carroll, if anything Liverpool are helping teams out, overpaying for players and then the smaller clubs getting better players for less.

    Like Swansea, sold Allen for £15 Million, and brought in Michu and Chico for £4 Million in total, and they look to be real Europe contenders with the start they have made, might be early days, but certainly look really strong, we will find out when they come up against the likes of City, United, Chelsea, Arsenal, Tottenham ect.

    Not forgetting Ki for £6 Million and Bartley for £3 million, Ki is class and Bartley had a really good few years with Rangers, and all that for £13 Million, De Guzman on loan, wouldn’t think they were only promoted last season.
